Three Peaks Challenge Renewed

“The Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland, often within 24 hours. The three mountains are Snowdon in Wales (1085m), Scafell Pike in England (978m) & Ben Nevis in Scotland (1344m).”

This is the definition of the Three Peaks Challenge as discribed on the official website. Amazing isn’t it?!

We Love London (Well, I certainly do)

It has been a week ago since me and my friend stayed in London for a couple of days. Besides us visiting some friends we met during our traveling (She went to Thailand, I went to Indonesia), we just love London.

People may think London as this big, touristy stretch of ground with far to much traffic jam and maybe that isn’t completely untrue, but London has so much more to offer that will make you take those few things for granted.
London is a very versatile city. You like visiting museums during your trips? No problem! You don’t even have to pay entrance fees for most of them. You rather stroll around little markets and enjoy shopping? London is your place! How about some nature and quiet times? You got it. London has some beautiful parks and the train brings you to lots of other, less touristy towns and villages where you can enjoy your time away from all the happenings. Oh, and let us not forget about the pubs and nightlife. London isn’t that short of them as well.

As you can see, London offers all kinds of everything; for anyone!
